Does this video of my 47re shifting look normal?
Other than the blurry picture please watch the acceleration video in my truck and let me know if this is normal. I never feel gear shifts, it is almost like it has a CVT transmission until the Convertor locks up. Is it starting in 2nd? It seems like it always shifts from 1st to second at about half a mile per hour when I just let off the brake and it starts rolling forward. It takes a lot of throttle to get the truck to start rolling if I am stopped on a hill. I don't have shift flares or anything that would make me think it is slipping. I've adjusted the kickdown cable in and out and I couldn't tell any difference at any position. Would the Governor Pressure Solenoid and sensor cause this? Should I install a shift kit? or is this completely normal not to be able to tell that it is shifting gears until you hit overdrive. It feels weak and slow until you hit overdrive and then it will take off like a bat out of hell.
